Rochester, MI-Oakland Hockey general manager Corey Hagood has announced that forward Jake Novack has committed to Oakland.
Novack comes to Oakland from Little Caesars U18 (T1EHL). He plans to study in the engineering program.
"I’m super excited to be continuing my hockey career and schooling at Oakland University." Novack stated.
Jake, is the third Novack to play for the Oakland ACHA DI Hockey program. His cousin Adam, a forward played from 2009-2013 and had 141 points at Oakland. Jake's brother Luke, currently plays defense for the Golden Grizzlies and is entering his second season.
"I’ve watched Oakland play since I was little watching my cousin." Novack said. "Last year, I watched my brother and I love the program and the education."
This season will mark the first time the Novack brothers have played together besides in summer hockey. "I’ve always been too young to play with my brother on an actual team." Novack stated.
"We’ve played together before on a summer team and work very well together so I’m super excited for that!" Novack added.
On the ice, Novack will look to add offense to the lineup of head coach Nick Field. "I'm a playmaker that loves to control the puck and the play, but If I get an open shot I’m gonna take it."
